WSGLT 17th Annual Roundup Fundraiser & BBQ Aug. 25
August 9, 2018
The Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust will host their 17th Annual Roundup Fundraiser & BBQ on Saturday, August 25th. This year’s event will be held at the Sommers Ranch, on the Green River southwest of Pinedale. The funds raised at this event directly support u Land Trust’s conservation and stewardship efforts, and help to educate producers and the public about agriculture and conservation.
Highlights of the evening include live music by country western singer Brenn Hill, food by Pitchfork Fondue, and a free tour of conserved ranches. There will be a live and silent auction to benefit agricultural land conservation. The Annual Roundup fundraiser is a family-friendly event, so bring the youngsters!
The adjacent Sommers Homestead Living History Museum, operated by the Sublette County Historical Society, will stay open late during the evening so event guests can walk over and tour the Homestead. Restored buildings on the historic site include the 100-year-old two story log homestead house, a log ice house, underground root cellar, garage/shop, log bunkhouse, meat house, and log barn. The museum does living history to interpret homestead era history of the early 1900s in the Upper Green River Valley. There are a lot of hands-on living history things to do at the Homestead, so the kids will have a lot of fun milking the cow, collecting chicken eggs, digging for blocks of ice in the ice house, hand washing laundry on scrub boards, roping, doing leather work, playing on the Homestead playground, and more.
